Head coach Carlos Carvalhal refused to be drawn on the match officials performance after their goalless draw at Queens Park Rangers.

Referee Andy Haines sent visiting fans into a rage as he failed to send off Clint Hill after the Rangers defender brought down Modou Sougou in the first half half or award Wednesday a penalty when Paul Konchesky clumsily tripped substitute Lucas Joao.

Sougou, one of seven changes to the Owls line-up, was taken to hospital after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder.

Carvalhal, who claims the Owls should have been given a spot-kick versus Hull City, when Kieran Lee went down in the box said: “I don’t want to talk about that (the incident). Everybody saw it on the pitch and on the TV and people will come to their own conclusions. I am not talking going to talk about the referee.”

When asked if he felt unfortunate not to pick up maximum points at Loftus Road, he said: “I don’t feel unlucky. We played two strong teams who were relegated last year. They are two strong teams.

“We finished this game with a positive vibe.

“We have a strong spirit in the team and I think this is something that everybody must be proud of.”
